Diabetes Art: #Dblog Week, Day 6 May 19, 2013

Dblog Prompt: This year Diabetes Art moves up from the Wildcard choices as we all channel our creativity with art in the broadest sense. Do some “traditional” art like drawing, painting, collage or any other craft you enjoy. Or look to the literary arts and perhaps write a d-poem or share and discuss a favorite quote. Groove to some musical arts by sharing a song that inspires you diabetes-wise, reworking some song lyrics with a d-twist, or even writing your own song. Don’t forget dramatic arts too, perhaps you can create a diabetes reality show or play. 

Diabetes art using an infusion set, strips, glue and glitter.I must admit that this Diabetes Art is from Friends For Life 2012. But, it has not made a blog appearance yet, and this creature is not what is important about this post.

What is important is that diabetes should get to be fun. Definitely not all the time, but some of the time. Building this creature was one of the first things I did at FFL. Brian, Ginger and I goofed around, used some diabetes supplies in unexpected ways and put glitter in unexpected places. And it was fun. Truly big smile and laughing fun.

Diabetes camps can be fun, as a camper or a leader (I didn’t enjoy diabetes camp until I ran my own). This #Dblog week adds some fun, talking with the #DOC on Twitter often adds a smile and laugh to my day. Diabetes is tough and unrelenting, but it is important to take a break, however small, to add some fun to the whole thing.

Check out some true Diabetes Art at the #Dblog Week link list for today’s topic!

I can’t tell if the blue thing is a snout or a tail… but that’s not important, right? 🙂

Or a horn! But no, that’s not what’s important. What is important is that it’s blue 😉
